Matheson Kamin’s Best of 2012 List

2012 was a great year for music. During the year, many great albums were released. Because of this, it made the job of choosing what would appear on my Best Of list that much more difficult than usual. The ten albums included in this year's list include two releases not reviewed on the Rock And Roll Report. And while Poema from Romina Di Gasbarra and Everywhere All the Time from Jackopierce did not get reviewed here, I had to include them in my year end list because of how strong they were. Please check out these great albums.

CD Review: Red Wanting Blue “From the Vanishing Point”

Columbus, OH band Red Wanting Blue is finally realizing their dream of becoming a household name outside of the state of Ohio after more than a decade of existence. That success is thanks, in part, to the band’s last album, These Magnificent Miles. It was that album that captured the attention of New York-based record label, Fanatic Records. Fanatic Records re-released These Magnificent Miles and they have helped Red Wanting Blue gain a larger audience on a more national level.

Red Wanting Blue on why “the fucking road deserves the reverence of The Beatles”

We recently had the pleasure to bounce some “Qs” off of Scott Terry – lead singer of the Ohio-based roots rock band, Red Wanting Blue. The band has been touring relentlessly for 10 years now and their latest release, “These Magnificent Miles,” is a collection of engaging tunes centered loosely around life on the road.

Q: I’d like to get started with the band’s name: Red Wanting Blue.  Is this a political reference – your wanting a traditional red state, like your home state of Ohio perhaps, to become blue, or what?

CD Review: Red Wanting Blue “These Magnificent Miles”

Red Wanting Blue hail from Columbus, Ohio, but they probably call the road their home. They’ve been in perpetual motion for 10 years now, taking their classic roots rock and pop to every town that will have them. As you can surmise from the title, “These Magnificent Miles,” their latest record was written while on the road and tells stories of life on the road. These stories provide us with a rare glimpse into the highs and lows faced by a band touring relentlessly and fighting for survival.

Rock and Roll Report Band of the Week: Red Wanting Blue

When most bands get together, they have a common goal of playing a few shows and making money. Most bands stay together very long because the members are just in it for that brief moment of time and they’re gone, having moved on to other things in their lives, or to different musical projects.
